Review for MERCY LEARNING CENTER OF BRIDGEPORT INCORPORATED, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Mercy Learning Center for the last nine years, first and ongoing as a tutor, and then additionally as a Board member, treasurer and committee member. In these varied capacities I feel I have gotten to know very well the organization, its leadership and its work. As a tutor I meet twice a week with a student, teachering her English, math and writing. This is the most rewarding volunteer work I have ever been engaged it. It's very gratifying to help someone one on one and to see my student advance. And it's very inspirational to get to know the students who are working so very hard to improve their and their families lives, coming to school while juggling jobs and family responsibilities. The organization is stellar, very well run with a hardworking and compassionate staff dedicated to the mission of educating and empowering women. They treat each woman with respect and offer the students a welcoming, safe place to learn. As the former treasurer I know that Mercy is very well run financially. Expenditures are well thought out, planned for and controlled. This year Mercy is undertaking some long-planned and much needed expansion of its building so that it can serve even more students.
